Bangkok has welcomed a new rooftop bar, located on the 59th floor helicopter landing pad of a five-star hotel. That makes it Thailand's highest rooftop bar (that is until MahaNakhon's Observatory opens).

Located above Centara Grand at CentralWorld's long-established Red Sky, you access Cru from a little elevator at Red Sky which drops you out right on top of the hotel, where you get full 360-degree views over Bangkok.

A partnership with G.H. Mumm means the focus is on Champagne, with a bottle of G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut setting you back B5,400—an amazing price. For perspective, a bottle of Mumm at Banyan Tree's Vertigo starts at B8,900. 

Cocktails also have a Champagne focus. Expect over-the-top presentation and inedible props in the likes of La Vie En Rose (B1,100), which comes in an ice bucket featuring two glasses of Champagne, two portions of strawberry puree and one shot of Absolut Raspberry.

Other cocktails are fruity and flamboyant. The Swallow's Nest (B488) is a shocking-pink glass of Absolut Elyx vodka, Cointreau, beetroot juice, pomegranate juice, passionfruit juice, lime juice and rosemary syrup—all served up in a bird's cage.

Another one to try is Something Green (B488), which comes in a martini-like glass on crushed ice and features a combination of Midori, tequila, mango juice and pineapple juice, decorated with a rubber duck.

Food is down-to-earth and good for sharing. The kurobuta pork belly steamed buns with Korean chili paste cost B285, while sweet potato fries with sweet chili dipping sauce are B295.
